Human-centred focus in future mobility solutions

What should the infrastructure and mobility look like in the cities of the future? This is what Vaike Fors, Professor of Design Ethnography, and her colleagues have been studying in the AHA II project. By promoting collaborations between the public sector and industry, while engaging municipal residents in the development process, new methods for future local transport solutions have been developed.


The AHA II project has been ongoing for two years and is an extension of the pilot project AHA. It is funded by Drive Sweden, which is one of Sweden's 17 innovation programs. The project's work with urban development, focusing on transport and mobility, has been characterised by collaborations between companies, municipalities and municipal residents.

AHA II is based on the previous project, Co-Designing Future Smart Urban Mobility Services – A Human Approach (AHA), which was about engaging the users in developing future mobility solutions.
